Lanzarote has a uniqueness that means it offers much more than a typical sun and beach destination.
Lanzarote is the Canary archipelago’s north-easternmost island. Although it covers no more than 800 square kilometres, it offers strikingly diverse landscapes. The legacy of the volcanic eruptions that took place in the 18th and 19th centuries is a spectacular scene of unique form and beauty. Alongside incomparable landscapes made up of volcanic caves, lava lakes and craters, beaches of golden sand washed by a crystal clear ocean.
The most beautiful of the island’s beaches are Papagayo in the south as well as Famara and Caletón Blanco in the north. And let’s not forget the fabulous beaches that stretch along the coast of the tourist resorts: Costa Teguise, Playa Blanca and Puerto del Carmen, as well as the truly stunning natural beaches on the island of La Graciosa.
Lanzarote is a volcanic island where the colours of the landscape change with every step, where nature and art prevail and conservation is cherished. Rising from the heart of Timanfaya National Park are the Montañas del Fuego (Mountains of Fire). This is the ideal place from which to admire the spectacular landscape, witness volcanic activity with your very own eyes and enjoy a meal cooked with the heat of the volcano at El Diablo restaurant.
